As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

One week till school starts

School starts in a week and I’m not ready to let go of summer! I’m honestly not looking forward to this school year, at least not the first couple of months. We will have a new SEA, new teacher, new classroom and classmates, and even new administrative staff, and it’s not even a new school! That’s the school system for ya, eh?

While Bryce is pretty good at transitioning, it’s just a lot of ‘new’ for him (and me) to take in at once, and I’m hoping it doesn’t affect either of us too much. Bryce was really attached to the staff that worked with him over the last couple of years. Hopefully everything will work out.

Back to school

We’re going ‘Back-To-School’ shopping tomorrow. With summer almost over, I’m hoping that buying Bryce’s school supplies will get him ready, or at least aware, to start getting back into the school routine.

I’m still not ready to let go of summer!

Thanks for reading,


  1. I have to agree with you Tanaya. I'm not ready to get back into the early morning starts, training of new support staff, IEP meetings, and all the rest of the demands during the school year. Fingers are crossed that Kurtis gets the same teacher and at least one EA from last year. We know some of the changes ahead but often there are surprises in the works that as a parent you just are not privy to ahead of time.

    Good luck to your household with all these "new" experiences and praying that Bryce ends up with good support staff.

  2. @Lori-ann Thanks, Lori-ann! Our school has been really great at meeting all our needs and expectations, so hopefully everything will be simliar, if not better, this year.

    We'll be crossing our fingers too that Kurtis gets the same staff. School systems need to be more on board and realize how much consistency plays in a part of the future, and success, of our children.

    Have a great first day of school (and school year), Kurtis and Lori-ann
